Police in Newcastle are hunting a man who held up a post office at knifepoint. Staff at the shop in the Newbiggin Hall shopping centre were left 'shaken', after the man threatened them and stole what police described as a "small amount of money."
It happened at around 10 am on Saturday, 29 December. No one was injured, and the suspect ran off towards Eastgarth. He is described as white, of slim build and around 6 feet tall, with brown hair. He was wearing a black ski mask, dark trousers and a black, shiny, hooded shell-suit top.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.
